Residents Honored At Society For Technology In Anesthesia Meeting

January 8, 2016

CA-2 residents Dr. Shoeb Mohiuddin and Dr. Dan Roshan received a Best Abstract Award at the Society for Technology (STA) in Anesthesia meeting this week at the Four Seasons Resort in Palm Beach, Florida.
The residents won the Excellence in Technology award for their abstract/presentation Utilization of Immersive 360 degree Spherical Videos and Google Cardboard in Medical Training and Simulation: A Novel and Multi-Dimensional Way of Learning. Dr. Heike Knorpp served as the residents’ faculty mentor.

Since 1994, the STA has presented awards to the authors of the best abstracts at the annual meetings of the Society for Technology and the American Society of

Anesthesiologists. These awards are motivated by the STA bylaws, which state the purpose of the Society as “the improvement of the quality of patient care by (1) improving technology and (2) its application”. Given this overall goal of the Society, the Research Committee rewards research into technologies that address high priority needs of the practice of anesthesia. The Research Committee reviews all technology related abstracts presented at the STA and ASA annual meetings and selects the best ones in the following three categories:

  • Excellence in Technology Innovation
  • Clinical Application of Technology
  • Application of Technology to Education

In selecting abstracts, the Committee looks for:

  • Originality of concept and/or good experimental design;
  • A careful analysis;
  • Well-presented results;
  • Medical significance of the contribution

Congratulations to Shoeb and Dan!
